Shared Objects Enhancement

Spinbackup Shared Objects enhancement allows G Suite administrators a great visibility of resources, that are shared both inside and outside the G Suite organization. This includes shared resources that are not classified by any defined data leak or cybersecurity policy. G Suite administrators can update and recourt the list of shared objects according to the current set of rules. The Spinbackup system gives visibility of the rules, under which the files are shared. This allows much greater visibility and configurability for G Suite administrators, preventing any unauthorized data leak events.

Spinbackup Shared Objects Enhancement Overview

To find the new Spinbackup Shared Objects enhancement, navigate to the Data Audit dashboard. This is found under the Cybersecurity section of the Spinbackup navigation pane. The new switch is found in the upper right-hand corner of the “Items shared with the 3rd-party users” screen. The “Show all shared files” option switches when turned to the ON position. It displays all the resources shared in the G Suite organization.

  • Owner – The G Suite user sharing the resources
  • Shared With – Shows the email addresses the resource is shared with (either internal, external, or both)
  • Rules – Displays the locality respective of the G Suite organization of the person, the resource is being shared with
  • Cancel – Allows G Suite administrators to remediate any specific resource sharing

G Suite administrators have the ability to stop sharing resources defined in the Shared Objects enhancement

Incident Feedback

Incident Feedback is a new Spinbackup feature, that allows G Suite administrators to provide feedback on whether the cybersecurity event was identified and classified correctly by the Spinbackup machine learning algorithms. G Suite administrators can triage cybersecurity events, that are captured in the Domain Audit dashboard and mark decisions based on the actual event. This serves two purposes – to remediate any false positives and to tweak the machine learning algorithms, used to classify similar cybersecurity events.

Spinbackup Incident Feedback Overview

To navigate to the Incident Feedback configuration, you navigate to the Domain Audit Dashboard. To find the Domain Audit Dashboard, from the main Spinbackup Dashboard navigation, under Cybersecurity click on Domain Audit. A new column, called Status, appears to the right of the Domain Audit dashboard.

Spinbackup Domain Audit Dashboard now contains a Status field for events

By clicking on the Status field “New” hyperlink, an Incident dialog box opens. It gives G Suite administrators the ability to classify the new event.

Event Classification:

  • New – The event is a correct identification of a new threat to the G Suite organization
  • False Positive – The event was incorrectly identified as matching a cybersecurity rule set
  • Resolved – The scenario, leading up to the event classification, has been remediated

The Incident dialog box in the Incident Feedback functionality allows G Suite administrators to classify events

G Suite administrators can also add a Message regarding the new event classification. This allows any additional details, either technical or others, to be added to the event classification.

G Suite Security Policies

Spinbackup’s new G Suite Security Policies allow for greater flexibility in customizing G Suite Apps Audit, Data Audit, and Domain Audit related policies. It includes additional settings, that enable G Suite administrators to customize the handling of various events along with the associated actions for those events. Custom Policies allow a more granular control over Security Policies in the environment, allowing for specific rule scopes, exceptions, and notification settings on a per rule basis as well as prioritizing the processing order of the defined Custom Policy rules.
